Overview

VILLA 85
5 BEDROOMS | 10 GUESTS | PRAIA DA FERRADURA, ARMAÇÃO DOS BÚZIOS

A much sought after property in Búzios, the villa is a five-bedroom beach house situated on one of the most attractive and secluded beaches on the peninsula, just a 10-minute car ride away from the center of town. The house is enhanced internally thanks to the beautiful works of art and antique furnishings.

This beachfront property has five comfortable air-conditioned bedrooms (two with verandas, one opening to the swimming pool, and two opening onto the garden), and can accommodate up to 10 guests. Inside the house is a large open-plan living room, a spacious dining area, a TV room, a fully equipped open-plan kitchen, and a small bar for making cocktails.

Outside at the rear of the house there is a sun deck where you can enjoy breakfast, and running along the front of the house is a spacious outdoor veranda with sofas and tables, where you can admire the beautiful view. The house has a swimming pool, also with a beautiful view of the beach, and a pool deck with sun chairs.

From the house you will find steps down to the raised garden - only five yards back from the beach - with beautiful coconut palms and another spacious deck with lounge furniture and a dining table under a bougainvillea-covered pergola.

The villa is suitable for groups of friends and families with children of all ages.


"This villa - they said this was the perfect place for them to spend a week...beachfront location meant the kids were able to run from the house, to the pool, to the sea whenever they wanted. The rooms were simple but very comfortable and the cook was fantastic (they did say that you should definitely recommend that people have the cook as it would have been tricky without him). “ - The Black Family, UK

Area description

Situated less than 125 miles from Rio, Armação dos Búzios is the ultimate weekend getaway for Cariocas. A small rustic fishing community, Búzios became popular in the 60’s as a beach escape for Rio’s rich and famous (Brigitte Bardot was even photographed there on holiday, putting Búzios firmly on the map). The area has experienced rapid growth over the last 15 years, however it has retained its charm by controlling development and allowing only low-rise construction.

Beyond the 23 different beaches on the peninsula - best explored by beach buggy or by one of the schooners that tours the bay daily - there are many other activities including diving, surfing, fishing, water sports, boat charters, hiking, horseback riding and golf.

Rua das Pedras, a cobblestone road in the center of the town, runs along the shore and boasts charming restaurants and bars, chic shopping, and a vibrant nightlife scene.

A maid, and a caretaker/gardener everyday (8am – 4pm).

EXTRA STAFF
Additional professional cooks, maids, babysitters, barmen and boatmen (for rented boats) may be provided for an extra cost and paid for locally when requested in advance.

TRANSFERS TO THE VILLA
Private transfers with trusted drivers can be arranged from both airports in Rio upon request (the drive is around 2.5 hours). Búzios has its own small airport, and helicopter and private plane charters are also available upon request. Car hire in Búzios is recommended while staying at this house.

DAY BOATS AND YACHT CHARTER
Boat charter is the best way to explore the pristine beaches around Búzios. We work with a variety of speed-boats, crewed yachts and converted local fishing boats which can be arranged for you in advance or during your stay.

PRE-ARRIVAL GROCERY SHOPPING
To make your arrival at the property as relaxing as possible, we suggest we stock the kitchen and fridges with a customized grocery shop prior to your trip. This means that you will arrive to a kitchen full of food, a fridge full of cold drinks and that the first meal can be served shortly after your arrival.

Best Bits

  • The ideal beachfront location, only five yards back from the sand
  • The focus on the outdoor spaces - the pool, the garden, the veranda and the deck. Even all of the common areas inside the house have large glass doors and windows giving views and letting in great light

Bear in Mind

  • Parents with young children should be aware that the pool is not fenced off
  • While the house is extremely comfortable and well-appointed, the house is not aimed at those who are after contemporary design and decor
